animosity out overhaul in the white house again donald trump's now replaced his chief of staff with the current secretary of homeland security we're going to look back at all the turbulence of the infighting the current u.s. administration so far. coming up to this thirty minutes like living in hell describing it as human rights watch say police are abusing migrants in the french port city of galle while authorities say they're struggling to cope with a new influx of people. opposition protesters clashed with police in venezuela ahead of a crucial vote on who will be involved in rewriting the country's constitution we break down the situation in that crisis told country do you can down those horrible
political lynchings third you can down those horrific political assassination of this deal by the our own people. and i think it's very unfair to say. why they just day this saturday the twenty ninth of july and of course kevin zero in here at all it's international so thirty minutes of news to come starting with this barely a day seems to pass in the white house with a new controversy up evil donald trump's now announced the chief of staff will step down to be replaced by the current secretary of homeland security john kelly there is he's just the latest though of course in a string of high profile officials to head for the exit over the past six months a week ago there was the white house press secretary sean spicer saying goodbye also left his position didn't surprise a lot of people that because he hadn't been to many briefings of late but the big surprise of course before that the dismissal of the f.b.i. director. james komi back in may that did come as
a shock even for that guy one of the reasons trump gave for the decision was the intelligence chief handling of the investigation into hillary clinton's use of a private e-mail server so many headlines about that but before that then two of those the national security advisor michael flynn forced to resign over alleged ties with russia next jacqueline vocal in looks at how relationships in the white house are starting to resemble pretty much one particular t.v. series. between senate investigations and twitter wars the current us presidency has barely gotten the ball rolling but there has been plenty of drama we are strongest when we're unified. this is a bunch of scumbags. president was being small president is not presidential at all. we're all going to sing rowdy this country around mr speaker to call for the impeachment of the president boy have they tried i mean
every single thing but i'm. not. when i'm finished i think they will absolutely. lately the bipartisan tug of war has shifted to being on the lines of the enemy of my enemy is my friend take attorney general jeff sessions not long ago he was considered one of trump most trusted allies whereas democrats were less than impressed he's a man of integrity a man of principle and a man of total utter resolve he crossed the department of justice should be above reproach for the good of the country attorney general sessions should resign in just a couple of months trump's law for sessions has turned sour and lo and behold thunder chuck schumer is suddenly coming to his defense i am disappointed in the attorney general he should not have recused himself even if the president has disagreements with him which i think are real found self centered. and wrong you
don't ridicule him in public apparently there's a thin line between love and hate and that line is basically just a few tweaks and it works the opposite way as well let's look at former f.b.i. director james comey when he spoke out on the hillary clinton investigation that praised his valor while the democrats were far from pleased it took guts for director coming to make the move that he made it light of the kind of opposition he had. the f.b.i. director has no credibility oh how the times have changed since he's a showboat he's a grandstander the f.b.i. has been in turmoil you know that i know that the reason that tony was fired was because donald trump wants to cut off any investigation and it's not just politicians who are easily swayed the media follows the changing tide as well george w. bush was slammed by the press and seen as one of the worst american presidents
toward the end of his time in office he leaves office the most unpopular president in modern history this president performed so poorly we have a president to transcend at least stupid he is the worst president of my lifetime but a few well aimed comments in an interview turned him into a white house favorite i consider the media media to be indispensable to democracy we need an independent media to hold people like me to account it's very funny to the sense of humor is coming well he said oh well respected mr president we want to thank you. even former white house press secretary sean spicer who was one of the media's favorite punching bags for some time is now feeling the love following his resignation rumor has it he may even become a reality t.v. star the political positions are breathtakingly incoherent they're schizo phrenic with all due apologies to schizophrenia what is trump saying we were against it it's like that groucho marx songs is whatever you're for i'm against it it just
depends because this isn't about platform is said about conviction it's not about ideology it's about personality we have two parties in this country. and. so it seems the rule of thumb in washington these days is to keep your enemies post and your friend in me is even closer at least until it's more beneficial to turn on . our t. washington d.c. . police the french quarter coulée are accused of abusing migrants on a routine basis human rights watch reports that it's quote let live. in hell for some of these guys the rights group says that pepper spray is used on migrants in circumstances often when they pose no threat police are also accused of confiscating sleeping bags and clothing from the migrants while disrupting access to humanitarian aid the town's authorities say they don't want to return though to that infamous refugee camp known as the jungle that was so publicly dismantled last year. room but we don't want the jungle to reappear we don't want people to arrive
in station here that's why we've been added to the six police cordon squad already near sudanese court grounds in order to prevent the influx we've seen over the past few weeks from continuing to grow. to compound those fears migrants are still arriving in cali human rights watch say over four hundred and now there are estimates put as high as six hundred about a half of them are unaccompanied children police are warning though that the growing numbers could lead to or of pay to the violence that time saw earlier. the old wound which. was. whoa whoa. whoa whoa. the police admit they're struggling to cope while the migrants say they
feel abandoned by the authorities to spend my six month in college and there's one of them came and this is to all the people you'll see in france one of many we'll give you a fair part in your work to get in there maybe build your life then separately in the heart of france enough to know we are in the cease fire and not as if these were us normal actually more we have about six hundred migrants here now and we're expecting more like there's a zero tolerance policy towards the settling of migrants and the reconstruction of the jungle with the mission of the police is clear that migrants must be prevented from sleeping in certain areas and from forming groups there's more and more tension including between the migrants themselves we also have difficulties with the far left which choice to promote a world without borders and without police they are particularly nervous about the actions of the police they try to film and attackers thank you. extentions now that we have more work to do we've asked for reinforcements and receive them from the
interior ministry our job is not at all easy it is difficult to stop migrants from gathering in certain places. meanwhile reports of dire conditions are coming from migrant company or things from charlotte dubai and skis the. alcohol of violence and reports of rape that's the reality in this migrant camp that's being dubbed the humanitarian slum here in metz. the problem there is a problem with alcohol and violence even us and they were cafes problems they don't have food but they managed to get hold of alcohol we don't know how to handle the situation there is not enough security over the number of people here the camp is been dismantled several times but every time it's taken down a new people come in the camp is reformed locals formats are concerned about its impact. this problem has to be addressed quickly for their sake as well as for us
there suffer in. the city of mats was not prepared for the count there thought it is empty but now there are seven hundred refugees back there again. the national weather service in mount holly new jersey has issued a special marine warning for. coastal waters from new jersey defend island delaware out twenty nautical miles and six am at five o seven am. extending from atlantic city reef to wildwood reef moving used at forty five knots. as are wind gusts thirty four knots or greater source indicated and known as gage reported impact small craft could be damaged in briefly higher winds
and suddenly higher waves locations impacted include buoy two f. b. brown like a plant to the reef three s b forty foot bank light gray taking life cape and east point bowers beach rehoboth beach cape may point like great grief rain the wind chill light ocean city reef indian river inlet bridge wildwood over falls the length and cape may reef move to safe harbor immediately as gusty winds and high waves are expected. the situation of five right now so serious that least in biafra. council flies to caracas this weekend they're fearing trouble. i. thank you.
so with a country funny good so facing a constitutional crisis president would do rose no calling all but as well it is to elect a new body it's set to be tossed with rewriting the current constitution as i mentioned that was set out under the form of president hugo chavez over five hundred representatives will be chosen from key groups in society but the initiatives and get the opposition they say they worry it's simply a way of extending the president's power as we had from both sides of this big divide the purpose is not all of the write the constitution the purpose is to get rid of the nationalists were to reward with two thirds of the board does precisely the reason and they have five percent of rejection of the regime sold the resources to the e.c.b. go. and. there's a presidential election in two thousand eighteen were made during is going to be up for a vote the opposition is going to run for president regardless of the outcome of the constituent assembly it's an open democratic process the opposition can run their
own candidates and they can participate in it but they have called to boycott it and stead of taking part and if they have the majority as a state they do pick it easily run with a majority of constituents and change the constitution how they want to see a change instead they've opposed a different credit process and called for violence in the streets of the response this is not of them. and we're just not trying to the. cia has been uncovered saying that they want to determine the outcome of the political process in venezuela they have long been funding to the tune of new orleans and millions and millions of u.s. taxpayer dollars to opposition parties to opposition movements no one wants u.s. intervention even people members of the opposition that i spoke to do not want the u.s. to intervene this is precisely they were. going. what you're going to venture is that only the united states now makes it go announce that the united kingdom. why. last on the twelve days. and seven minutes so that's
a lot of the lives that it is people about fifteen hundred have been wounded and we have almost two thousand people in jail the husband the price of a civic protest but it's really this is just another lie that it's just a hunch certainly to justify foreign intervention in the country vast majority of those deaths that over one hundred deaths are caused by opposition violence over a dozen assassinations by opposition protesters against people first of just for supporting the government i mean do you condemn those horrible political lynching surge you condemn those horrific political assassinations we are a peaceful opposition behold the whole world recognizes european uni's not all of the united states trying to go on to say look at america the people of no other they say they are being killed by the by our own people that's really rover's and i think it's very unfair to say no more to come this saturday lunchtime from moscow
in case you're new to the game this is how it works now the economy is built around corporations corporations run washington or washington control the media the media and so voters elected to businessman to run this country business equals power who must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before . again britain's prime minister tourism only them as last year to another of the top brics it strategists she was also recently voted the u.k.'s most popular leader ever at this stage of a premiership and nonetheless despite the turmoil of home she's heading off to europe for a three week long break when everybody needs a holiday don't go mostly half the time she's out of late probably boy her eggs up
the story the prime minister was meant to be getting away from it all but back in london yet another member of her senior team has gotten away from her downing street now former director of strategy chris wilkens has quit this follows four other resignations of may's closest aides the prime minister has now been abandoned by the very people that helped set out her vision for brags that the choice is becoming ever more clear. with our eyes fixed on the future strong and stable leadership with me as prime minister to see us through brics it and beyond or a coalition of chaos but with the plans architects no longer in the picture to reason may is short of a devises at a time when she needs the most critically wounded prime minister she either disastrous election campaign an election campaign that she won since a twenty four percent or has ended up losing his resignation chris will cain is
just not that example of part of the disastrous to go since the election rolling off the ship like rats i think that they see i've wounded government on the wounded prime minister britain has less than two years to negotiate bragg's it on its current course but brussels is still waiting for clarification of the u.k. stance on key issues and to resume a struggles don't tend with brags that the scandal over the grenfell fire disaster rages on london's metropolitan police have now announced that local authorities are under suspicion of corporate manslaughter meanwhile to resume a has admitted the party has been wrong on gay rights in the pasta with may now being urged to compensate tens of thousands of men who had been convicted in the u.k. under anti-gay laws decades ago to reason may is now the most unpopular british leader
one month after a general election opposition leader gerry corbin's fortunes have gone the of the way his popularity is now soaring but despite talk of cabinet rifts and disagreements publicly to resign may's senior ministers a putting up a united front at least for now she goes into the election and we didn't get the majority she wanted but she won the most seats she won the most votes i think she will last the scene. need for anymore political coup for for what the british people want to see is a government that gets on with the job and they've got that with treason but in a sign that the party could be seeking to disassociate itself from its beleaguered leader to reason ways picture was removed from the conservative website although with the next two years expected to be dominated by tough talks with brussels perhaps the only thing keeping to resume a job is that no one else once set party boy k r t london.
us secretary of state has claimed that russia and china are of partly to blame for north korea's recent missile tests. rex tillerson says moscow and beijing are quote the principal economic enablers of pyongyang's weapons programs and he went on to say that the two countries have a unique and special responsibility therefore for the ongoing threat to regional stability as far as the government responded to that accusation it comes after the north test fired another missile into the sea of japan for the second time now just this month shortly after that the north koreans tested along with the u.s. so the south koreans of the north koreans the south koreans and the u.s. let's get this right on their own joint missile exercise solve currently looking to increase its ballistic missile power in response to the perceived threat from its neighbor now the united states congress recently approved additional sanctions
against north korea in a bill that also targets a ran and russia human rights attorney eric serapion told us over that washington has not figured out how best to deal with pyongyang even now. you know this is something that seems like seeing to the administration or sometimes to people around the world but really we have not tried anything new yet we have been caught in this entire circle of militarism of one thread versus another and bolstering up what the us does not seem to get on an ongoing basis is the failure to engage talk it took hundreds of meetings to end the. korean started it and the vietnam war it takes sitting and talking and a lot of effort to build a relationship and rebuild the trust. president trump some to the
tremendous medical costs when he recently banned transgender people from serving in the u.s. army but now he says callum open has been finding out there are many other areas where the military's budget is spent on known combat activity. donald trump recently announced that transgender people will not be able to serve in the u.s. armed forces in any capacity he says this is being done in order to save money now the decision has been widely regarded as controversial by some americans we decided to ask people here in new york city what they thought was a good way for the pentagon to save money and for comparison we have a few examples of how the pentagon spends its cash the military spends roughly forty one point six million dollars each year on buy agra number two million dollars on strip clubs casinos by personnel misusing their government credit cards and number three uniform in afghanistan that does not match the landscape of the country and the last one hundred eighty three thousand five hundred dollars spent
by the defense department on birdwatching which one do you think is true the strip clubs ad where going to go with the bird watching. for and so let me guess they're all true and all of them are true. really was. a shock and that's why i was when you said true it was like they all sound true to me yeah that's ridiculous by agra i come by the fire one scary doesn't surprise a bit of the scary any one point six whole jesus sounds pretty wasteful i'm sure they could use that money a little bit better towards other things like fighting wars make use of the money go use the money just because this is wasteful it's absolutely disgusting i think they should be held accountable how do you feel about the decision to cut spending by banning transgender people while spending on these projects is ridiculous this whole thing is absolutely ridiculous but as usual what do you what can you expect. to present trump we can talk about all presidents and the president need to put him

solutions we hope you enjoyed it yes the media is obsessed in the united states of man spreading i see so many articles here about that but you know what else the media has been obsessed with over the over the past few weeks and months is russia here's a headline which shows you why we focus on things that the american audience we believe is interested in what americans care about vs what the media cares about this guy went through bloomberg data they just did a poll asking americans what they care about and looked at media research center a study which studied all the major news networks in america and how much time they devoted to various topics and what you see is that despite american people caring far more about health care than any other issue the media has swapped the airwaves with trump russia conspiracies to the detriment of nearly everything else and the remarkable one is russia only six percent of americans even care about the story
but seventy five percent of the air time on cable news focused on that so the audience doesn't care about it but they are focused on it yet well this is what the great ratings grab is all about twenty seventh day and it's all about conspiracy theories that the ideas trump one because of conspiracy theories so the left the democrats see n.b.c. of the world the rachel maddow of the world they're trying to emulate the michael savage is the alex jones and the rush limbaugh of with their own can spare. the theories in attempt and it's working people are tuning in to rachel maddow not because she's informative but because she's a frickin lunatic that's more entertaining than watching even more downey from the one nine hundred seventy s. one nine hundred eighty s. martin downey jr and downey jr this woman's become work down in georgia with the scared off so while we've been gone over the past few weeks of summer solutions jamie dimon was in the news oh oh.
